BBC Music has launched in the US, bringing its in-depth music journalism to a stateside audience. US produced content will be featured alongside the BBC's deep catalog and extensive coverage of global festivals, music news and more.
It will also feature access to interviews and live performances, including BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge, never previously available through the BBC to audiences outside of the UK. Live Lounge has featured performances by Ariana Grande, Dua Lipa, Jay-Z, Taylor Swift, Foo Fighters and more.
"BBC Music is all about connecting fans with music they love from their favourite artists, and music they're going to love from their next favourite," said U.S. Features Managing Editor Simon Frantz. "There's a huge amount of great music being produced in the U.S. right now, and we're excited to help connect those artists to our vast, music-hungry audience."
